FAT DOUGHNUT-MUNCHERS COOKING THE BOOKS

By Pete Moore On November 18th, 2014 at 8:36 pm

Not only useless, but liars too

Official crime stats have always been lies. This is not only because they’re often police stats, and the police is all about vested interests, but also because the police are agents of government, and governments always lie, because politics pollutes everything it touches. So the police have been caught out lying about crime numbers, because they’re ignoring vast numbers of serious offences:

More than 800,000 - or one in five – of all crimes reported to the police each year are not being recorded by officers, a report suggests.

The problem is greatest for victims of violent crime, with a third going unrecorded. Of sexual offences, 26% are not recorded.

An HM Inspectorate of Constabulary report looked at more than 8,000 reports of crime in England and Wales.

The watchdog said the failure to record crime properly was “indefensible”.

In most cases you’d be stupid to have anything to do with the police. Now we clearly see that hundreds of thousands of victims of very serious crime have wasted their time too.

The Inspectorate might say that the lies are “indefensible”, but the vested interests disagree, with various fat doughnut-muncher representative groups bleating about “workloads” and “inadequate training”. More lies. Now they’ve been caught red-handed they cannot stop lying.

The cat was out the bag this morning when a senior doughnut-grazer, on Radio 4, said it was all about government targets: if too many victims were reporting too many types of particular crimes then into Room 101 goes the complaint. As well as being morally reprehensible (though not surprising), this is plain fraud, and it’s an epidemic. The only books they have to report are crimes stats, and they can’t even keep those straight. Of course the State treats society without mercy in financial reporting (the special interests aside), but no coppers will have their collars felt over this fraud perpetrated against crime victims, because these fraudsters are another special interest, the praetorians and tax collectors.

AND – IT’S GONE

What a shocker

Ukraine, sitting on record gold reserves when the putsch regime took power, now reports that almost all the gold has gone. Zerohedge has a possible explanation.

SOMEONES O’FFENDED

Call the police!

In all the years I knew my uncle Paddy, God rest his soul, I never understood a word he said. He loved the gees gees, and travelling over from Limerick for a meet at Newmarket or Cheltenham races. He always stayed with us, at Christmas too, so I’d see him for a few weeks every year, and this went on for as long as I could remember until he went to the great bookies in the sky. And I never understood a word he said. We’d be watching the football and he’d moan about the ref or a player (ok, the “fecks” I sometimes caught, providing the occasional clue) and all I could do was go “yeah, that’s right.” The real problem was when he spoke to me. If I was in luck my mother would be around. Uncle Paddy would say something, it would be completely unintelligible, then I’d glance sideways at mum and open my eyes, silently communicating: “What did he say?” Then she’d translate for me.

So I did giggle at the hot news that the BBC is in trouble for adding subtitles for an interview with Barney Devlin, a Co. Londonderry blacksmith, shown on its ‘Countryfile’ programme. It’s a fascinating interview anyway, so check it out –

He sounds like the Queen compared to uncle Paddy. No subtitles required. I suspect it’s more a case of the BBC treating the audience as stupid, a habit it easily slips into. If the thing was edited in London then I’m sure that’s case. and therefore it’s the audience who might feel offended. Still it’s given the DUP and Sinn Fein an opportunity to come together in cross-community outrage, so they must be secretly grateful.

Westminster makes a stand

By Mike Cunningham On November 18th, 2014 at 12:27 pm

 

The whole place is in an uproar. A few well-meaning ‘Nanny-State’ supporters have placed the whole outfit on a collision course with Big Tobacco by planning to ban All Tobacco Products from sale in any store, bar or any commercial outfit in Westminster.

Obviously, it ain’t our Westminster, its the one in Massachusetts, and the local Board of Health smeaked in preparations to outlaw all smoking substances, all the things which some people want to enjoy, even though they know the risks.

But the good Board of Health members forgot one teensy-weensie little item when they proposed this ban; they forgot that this is Small-town America; and no-one tells Americans what to eat, smoke or even chew: no-one that is, who wants to keep their seats on that same Westminster Board of Health!

Where Westminster goes, hopefully lots of others might just stand up and follow.

 

A most ingenious paradox.

By Mike Cunningham On November 18th, 2014 at 11:29 am

Consider the facts.

A young woman claims she has been raped, and a jury finds her case proven, and the defendant guilty.

The defence argued firstly that the sex was consensual, as both participants were drunk, and then that the alleged victim, as she had no true recollection of the events, had not suffered. The accused still claims innocence, and refuses to apologise, even after he is released from prison after serving half his sentence.

The problem is compounded by the fact that the accused is a very well-known and prominent footballer; he claims that, even though he has always stated his innocence, he has done his time, and should be allowed to go on with his life.

His life seems to still revolve around football, and his club, Sheffield United, are allowing him to train with the club, but have not yet signed a contract.

Because of the Club’s stance in even considering allowing the rapist’s return, high-profile patrons of the club, such as Jessica Ennis-Hill of Olympic fame has asked that, if the rapist returns to the club, her name should be removed from the stand. Others have followed Jessica’s stance.

The Professional Footballers Association of Ireland have defended the club for their forgiving attitude, and further stated  “There was no violence and thankfully the victim has no recollection of it. This, I hasten to add, does not make it right, or anything close to it, but it is nonetheless a mitigating factor.

So, should Jessica speak up or shut up; and should this fine, upstanding role-model go back to the pitch, and his extremely-large pay-packet, and bye-gones should be bye-gones; or should he be banned from all football, for life, for this crime of violence against an unresisting young woman?

Why he could never Win

By The Troll On November 18th, 2014 at 12:01 am

fatmanFor a Republican to win the Presidency he has to motivate the Conservative Base to come out and vote. Dole couldn’t, McCaine couldn’t, Romney couldn’t. The only reason Bush won a second term was it was referendum on the War.

The Fat man could NEVER do it.  The base just came out and sent a message to stop what Obama and the Democrats have been doing. Period. That is why they gave them a strong majority in both Houses.

So today what does Christie come out and say.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Making a rare Capitol Hill appearance, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Monday encouraged the GOP’s newest members of Congress to embrace compromise and common ground as they shift to a governing role following their party’s midterm rout. 

The Republican governor, who is contemplating a 2016 presidential bid, addressed newly elected House Republicans and their spouses during a closed-door orientation luncheon inside the Capitol. The often-outspoken Christie declined to answer questions from reporters afterward, but attendees said offered a distinctly bipartisan tone.

“He did talk about compromise and finding common ground,” said incoming Rep. Tom MacArthur, R-N.J.

Stay in the contaminated swamps of New Jersey you Blow Hard!

White House taunts GOP on climate change: ‘I don’t believe they can stop us’

By Ben Wolfgang – The Washington Times – Monday, November 17, 2014

The White House on Monday essentially dared Republicans to try and stop President Obama’s climate-change agenda, with officials bragging that even after the GOP takes control of the Senate in January, there is nothing that can be done to stop a host of controversial new actions.

On a conference call with reporters, White House counselor John Podesta said the administration will move ahead on the issue despite Republican efforts to stand in the way. He even called out incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell by name, saying the Kentucky Republican will not succeed in trying to slow executive action on global warming.

And these are the people that claim they don’t need to be quarantined

By The Troll On November 17th, 2014 at 8:18 pm

martin-saliaThe Dr. Without Borders who just died in Nebraska of Ebola is a demonstration of why if we allow these people back into our countries they should be quarantined for the full 41 days recommended by the WHO.

Dr. Martin Salia’s Ebola test came back negative, his friends and colleagues threw their arms around him. They shook his hand. They patted him on the back. They removed their protective gear and cried.  But when his symptoms remained nearly a week later, Salia took another test, on Nov. 10. This one came back positive, sending the Sierra Leonean doctor with ties to Maryland on a desperate, belated quest for treatment and forcing the colleagues who had embraced him into quarantine.

The good Dr. is now dead.  He died today of Ebola.

This could just as easily have been the result of allowing that stupid Nurse to roam free that is suing because NJ and Maine had the gall to want her quarantined.   These Dr’s and Nurse’s that are doing wonderful work placing themselves in harms way treating this disease should be commended for their service.  They should then be placed in a space capsule for 41 days.

The majority of the people that have comeback with the disease are Dr.s and Nurses. They represent the kindest of heart and a danger to the General Public.

CHANGE IN THE CLASSROOM…..

By David Vance On November 17th, 2014 at 5:33 pm

Black teacher with mixed class.

When you dismantle your national borders and millions of immigrants pour in, there are severe consequences. One of the first areas to experience these consequences are the parts of the public sector most exposed to this demographic change.

Iain Duncan Smith, the work and pensions secretary, has said that non-English-speaking children are changing the character of British schools, as Ukip looks likely to gain its second MP in the Rochester and Strood by-election. The senior Conservative said an academic report setting out the billions of pounds that EU migrants had added to the economy was “silly” because it only looks at immigration in terms of the financial benefits to the economy.

His comments represent the latest escalation in the negative rhetoric about immigration as the Tories try to stem the flow of supporters to Nigel Farage’s party, which wants radically lower migration and a withdrawal from the European Union. On BBC Radio 5 Live’s Pienaar’s Politics, Duncan Smith said: “I thought there was a silly report, recently, in the last couple of weeks, that said: ‘Oh look in tax terms they have contributed more.’ First of all you have to take them all the way through to when they get older and they actually start taking from the state. You don’t account for the fact that often in many communities they literally change the schooling because so many people arrive not speaking English. You have then got problems you know with local services, transport all that kind of stuff.”

Here’s an example of what he means…

There are now ten schools in England without a single pupil who speaks English as his or her first language. Research reveals that there are almost 600 primary schools where 70 per cent or more of youngsters normally speak a foreign language. Across the country, one in seven pupils aged 4-11 does not have English as the first language, which is the equivalent of 466,620 children.

The change is picked up first in Primary schools, and then in Secondary schools. It is felt in the likes of the NHS. It is manifest in the Housing sector. Slowly but surely the radical demographic change will alter the face of this country forever and irreversibly. In some ways it may be too late. UKIP recognise this and so does an increasingly alarmed section of the UK population.

IN THE SAVAGE LAND….

The above image says it all, really. It’s from the latest horror show brought to us by Islamic State and shows 16 Jihadi preparing to decapitate captured Syrian soldiers. It is suggested that two Frenchmen, a German and a British man are amongst the executioners.

Where to start?

Well, what is it that makes these men want to kill fellow human beings in SUCH a barbaric fashion? This sort of mass killing is something that humanity should have left behind CENTURIES ago. Why is it that ISLAM brings us this grotesquerie? And what do we do about it?

I believe Islamic State should be pulverised into the dirt of IRAQ and SYRIA. As you know, that is not happening and so whilst it seems IS is suffering setbacks in IRAQ, it maintains its Syrian fortress. Obama’s hopeless prevarication over Syria is central to the problem here and there seems little evidence this will change anytime soon. There is also the question of whether we should send in…gasp — ground troops. I can see a case for this – but only if the mission is the utter destruction of IS. It’s not about Nation building, it’s about IS demolition. However I think our political leaders have no desire to contemplate this and so IS can continue to prosper, propagate and kill.
